Airflow to engine bay

Hi folks, does anyone have a pic or diagram of the correct layout of pipes feeding air into the engine bay from the 'ear' on the drivers side, i want to set it up correctly but cant seem to find anything even in the manual.

86 S3 N/A

Many thanks

Hey. Same car.

Can't find a diagram but can describe!

Left ear intake goes to left boot vent. This blows air across the rear screen. 

This air is 'picked up' by the opposite vent but there is no ducting attached to it. Air then it's picked up by the long open duct in the right rear wing, goes through the moisture trap on top of the right fuel tank board and into the engine bay and the carb air box. 

The left ear outflow comes from the engine bay surround left out port. 

The right rear intake goes into the right side engine bay surround port and the other port vents the hot air to the right rear ear.

Hope that helps some!
